The Whāingaroa wharf is an important space to the Whāingaroa and surrounding communities and we want to make sure it remains safe and enjoyable for many years to come.

That’s why, in January 2021 we carried out a detailed assessment of the wharf to see if there were any areas in need of maintenance or repair. As part of that assessment, we inspected the physical structure of the wharf and took a look underneath the deck.

This assessment identified several areas where maintenance and repair is needed. Some of the issues have now been addressed through regular Council maintenance. Any remaining repair works will be undertaken next year and through continued Council works.

Yes, even though some areas require repairs and maintenance, these repairs are necessary to enable the continued use of the wharf into the future.

The assessment identified several areas in the existing reinforced concrete beneath the wharf in need of a touch-up or replacement which is common for wharf structures of this age. Some areas of the wharf have been repaired in the recent past so we are looking to repair some of the other areas to make sure our community will be able to use it long into the future.

Structural repair and maintenance will be undertaken in mid-2022 at the same time as we carry out construction on the pontoon and walkways.

The repair work will take around 3-4 months to complete. This will be confirmed once a contractor has been engaged to undertake the works.

Our priority is to minimise disruption at the wharf while the repairs are underway. However, some local areas may need closing to public due to noise at various stages of the project. We will keep the community up to date on what to expect during this time.

We’ll work with our contractor closely to ensure any potential effects on the surrounding environment will be mitigated and closely monitored. Caring for the water and surrounding environment is a top priority.
